U of Nebraska has spaced out classrooms enough to compliantly not have to suspend classes for any positive cases.

Well that's probably better than the CDC at least

Hello BYU

I am very MEH on adding BYU as a full time member of the big12 but think a 1 year trial run this year to get us 10 conference games would be a good idea.

(not that we will actually play 10 games but just in case)

We can get them for one year similar to the ACC with Nortre Dame.  Also, ACC, SEC, and BIG Ten are playing 10 games so with BYU we could comply with P5.

SEC clownsuits the Big 12. This is really smart

https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/29566090/sec-play-10-game-conference-only-football-schedule
I think the Big 12 is being pretty clever about this. 

Wait until all the other conferences bail out on OOC --> set 10 game schedule w/ byu because there's no one to play in OOC anyway --> collect cancellation penalties from teams who bailed --> profit

We didn't have to give them anything, they have their own tv deal they can hang onto. Anyway,

Maybe the Big 12 just play 10 games, with the 10th being playing your in-state rival twice :fatty:

Honestly, I think most know that college football won't exist this fall. People are just holding on to the same false hope as the "it'll disappear in April just like the flu" kinda stuff. There is no way they can have football in the form we know it. Once students get on campus it'll become a petri dish of COVID. We might get like 2 or 3 games in before we get the season yanked from us in the same way the MLB is probably about to go.

Baseball has shown there is no shot they can finish a fall season. I wish they would just pack it up and start working on getting a spring season going. That being said a spring season won't be as easy as some think. The TV thing will be a real problem. There won't be any new scripted episodes of television until fall of 2021 so college football and basketball will have to play a lot of weeknight games if both are going in the fall. College Basketball will probably have to give up Thursday nights and all day each Saturday.

I saw an interview with an old Clemson coach and he had a decent point that two full seasons in a calendar year (spring and fall) would be hard on bodies. He might be overstating it, but he has a point.

give everyone an extra year of eligibility and enough scholarships to (temporarily) accommodate that.  maybe some sort of maximum number of minutes played to force coaches to use the extra players.
we understand it better now that the american century is over and some of us sound more and more like serbs.

They are doing that, it was stated in the Big XII media article.

Yeah, a spring season would have to be shorter and fall '21 would have to start later.

F BYU.  I would benefit more than anyone on this board and I don’t want them anywhere near our conference.

im not smart enough to know what the right answer is but what is it about baseball that tells you they can't finish a season? positive tests? EVERYONE in the world is planning on positive tests. what is happening in baseball is being planned for. it is expected. the plan for baseball is to play through it. the plan for college fb is to play through it. the only thing that will stop it is the look of it that media will paint and some parents of athletes might have. as far as i know, with all these positive tests the last 2 months in college athletes i am unaware of a single hospitalization. i believe the virus is serious and i dont think we should sacrifice the elderly for our sake and i wear a mask everywhere i go but i will also admit the media ONLY reports the dark side of the virus. They NEVER report ALL the millions who have recovered with virtually no symptoms or all the college athletes who have tested positive with almost no symptoms. if the media wanted to tell a different side of the story there is one out there. I'm in sales and it would be pretty easy to sell a positive side of what is a dark story
